The Acura NSX Concept car was back at the lately completed 2013 North American International Auto Show and this time approximately the guys from Honda had more than just the revolutionary external of the concept car to show to the multitude. Acura said that the interior design concept showcased this time is just one of the “possible directions for the next-generation NSX interior design,” which, like the cars outside, once again overwhelmed everyone at the auto show.
While the outside of the concept car has sustain its sleek, low and wide stance, with a clean, recent and high tech design, Acura also showed off the inside for the first time, which carries the “Human Support Cockpit” theme, articulating the “the synergy between man and machine.” The best part about the interior, however, would be that, while the concept design looks actually beautiful, much like that of a supercar, it has the possible to debut in the manufacture model without any major alteration. Nevertheless, the production car is still a pair of years away.
The interior harks back to the original NSX in that it has been developed to ensure highest all-round visibility and negligible interruption, while the V6 engine will be mid-mounted for wonderful weight allocation. To ensure superior handling and road-holding the car will have all-wheel drive.
The power from the gas engine will be abstracted to the rear wheels, while two batteries, mounted following the front axle, will drive the front wheels. Honda asserts that this set-up, which it calls its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system, will also ensure ecological as well as supercar performance.
The unique NSX (sold as the Acura NSX in North America and Hong Kong), which was launched in 1990 and continue in production until 2005, was designed and built to dispute Ferrari and drew on a number of Formula One technologies as well as the proficiency of a number of the sport's foremost lights.
Chief amongst them was Brazilian F1 racing icon Ayrton Senna, whose contribution and testing of prototype versions led to the finished car's firmer, more receptive chassis design and set-up amongst the original NSX's best features.
